Information was received by detectives from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office, Vice/Narcotics Division of drug activity in the Piney Point.

The source of the drug activity was identified as Shannon Danielle Parker, 38 of Piney Point. As the investigation continued, a vehicle stop was conducted by a member of the Vice/Narcotics Support Team on a vehicle in which suspect Parker was in. A search revealed a digital scale, cocaine, methamphetamine and “suboxone”. Suspect Parker and another suspect Thomas Ronald Morgan aka “Big Head”, 50 of Piney Point were arrested.

    Is Travis a dude or chick?? Seriously can’t tell. I am leaning more towards girl but Travis would be an odd name for a girl.

    Travis Richardson is a guy? Would’ve never guessed judging from that photo.

    • Gary B on October 28, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    Never run out of loser’s here

    I’m just waiting for a family member or friend to come defend “these upstanding citizens.” You know there is always one. Those comments are always the funnest. Typically poorly written and very defensive, and always lead to stooping to personal attacks because 1. they can’t deny that a crime was committed and 2. they have no debating skills.

    SMNEWSNET, You guys need to start posting updates if you going to keep posting folks mug shot. Several folks you posted here over the summer had their charges dropped!!

    SMNEWSNET:
    This is an update, the charges were dropped in Circuit Court and they now have cases in District Court

    • JJ Davis on October 28, 2014 at 8:14 pm

      No it is not, read the press release. Truth does hurt! District Court is a lower court.

  9. Brianna on October 28, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    Yates and Norris are relatives, I guess it runs in the family. This little piggie went to the market, and these two little piggies went to jail, there goes more of my hard earned money!

    • Anonymous on October 30, 2014 at 5:40 pm

      Roger buckler is a pos he is a crack head pills head and theft living off his mother I drive by his house every day looks like a dump

    Most of these people could stay out of trouble if they didn’t sell the stuff. They should just collect it and live happily ever after. You won’t ever see an undercover agent say I arrested him for collecting it and not selling it. So get out there and horde the dickens out of the stuff.

    • Brianna on October 31, 2014 at 10:35 am

      Are you for real. These people are addicts and need help. They will steal from their own mother to get their next fix. They all need to be sent away to rehab and jail. They are getting many younger kids addicted or even the worse dead. They are all users and addicts in my eyes. They need help, but won’t admit it. I have heard it so many times that I have changed and all they want is their next fix. They all needs rehab and stop stealing the hard working people here in the county money and things. I have seen yates on hers over three times and also Richardson. They will not stop until they get help!

      • Anonymous on November 3, 2014 at 9:59 am

        AND….they won’t get help until they truly want it! You can not force an addict to get help, they have to want it. Been there done that, as far as dealing with and trying to help out an addict. As they saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink!

        • Brianna on November 3, 2014 at 9:12 pm

          You are so right but these people have been doing it for so long that they need to go to jail that has a rehab facility for them. Yates and his cousin on here has been stealing from everywhere they can as we. As family members.

      • John Bobbit on November 6, 2014 at 11:54 am

        Yes, she is exactly right, There are several people on this post that have stolen money to get thier next fix.
